Halloween Releases from Plaseebo

    How has no one made an independent horror film with any of Plaseebo's creations?  If any of these three were after you, even if it was to just trying to return your cell phone that you left in a restaurant, you would not stop running until you died of exhaustion.  Then they would probably crawl inside your lifeless corpse and devour you from the inside out.  Especially the mouse looking one, he just screams "I'm feeling snacky for human flesh."  

    These three one of a kind figures will be available on Halloween at 12am eastern time only from  Now excuse me while I got nail all of my doors and windows shut.  

Weird Ways In Which People Find This Website

   Haven't done one of these in a while, but when a few people out there have stumbled upon my website with such an odd search criteria, it deserves a mention.  Apparently, three of you found your way here by looking up "Zack Ryder Japan."  For those of you not familiar with the world of professional wrestling, Zack Ryder is a WWE Superstar who does have an impressive collection of wrestling toys.  Now whether he's been to Japan or not I have no idea, because for some reason we don't hang out.  Call me Zack, my readers demand it!

Even More New Releases from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore

    My wife won't let me have this toy.  It's my own fault really, cause when I first saw Zug the Troll he wasn't wearing his fancy loin cloth and his twigs and berries were hanging out for all to see.  I made the joke that if I got one of these I would, every so often, snap a picture of his ding a ling and text it to my wife.  Here's how it would play out:

Sharon:  I miss you.

Me:  I miss you too.  But you know what else?

Sharon:  What?

Me: "troll ding a ling pic"

Sharon: I'm not speaking to you.

    It's kind of like the next level of Deez Nuts jokes and I thought she would be proud of me coming up with such a great innovation to a classic that also involved our toy collection.  Now I'm gonna have to buy her shoes.  

    All kidding aside, this new figure from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore is pretty intense.  Dude looks like he would have no problem gnawing the meat off of your bones if you dared to pass over his bridge.  He's making his debut tonight in both painted and unpainted versions.  And you don't even need to enter a lottery to get one.  All you have to do is visit at 8pm eastern time and pray that your Wi-Fi holds up.  

    Oh you thought that was all?  Nope, cause tomorrow night Sam Heinous makes his once per year appearance.  Also releasing at 8pm eastern time, this guy looks hellbent on bringing the tricks rather than the treats (Didn't that sound like I could almost work for Buzzed there for a second? )  I have a feeling a lot of people's credit cards are going to be screaming for mercy by the time this week is over.

Tricky Cats Blind Boxed Figures from Kidrobot Releasing Tomorrow!

    As you may or may not know, I have a few cats.  Not that you could tell from all the pictures I post on Instagram, or the patches of hair that stick to my clothing not matter what I do.  I love those little buggers and they certainly make life more interesting, like the fact that you never know what state of disrepair your house may be in when you return home from work.  Or if you'll roll over on your side trying to get comfortable in bed and find a hair ball staring you down as if it's ready for a turf war (That happened two nights ago and as proof that I'm totally getting better with not being freaked out by germs I just rolled the other way and went back to sleep.  I was reeeeeeeeeaaaaaaallly tired and was hoping it was maybe just a hallucination.  SPOILER ALERT: It wasn't)

    Just in case you had a pile of kittens turn up in your backyard and you're trying to place them in loving forever homes, I'm gonna have to let you know that we are as overcrowded as America's prison system.  The only cats we are currently accepting as new residents are of the plastic variety who respect that sanctity of antique furniture and carpeted staircases.  And lo and behold, we have some fitting candidates here in the form of these new Tricky Cats from Kidrobot.  These things are so freakin cute you'll be tempted to use your small animal/human baby voice as you tickle their wittle bellies.  

    These are packaged blind boxed, so just like real kitties you won't know what you get until they become adult bobcats and you're in your closet, cell phone in hand, begging animal control to come and get the thing before it finishes you off.  You only make that mistake once.  These will be available starting tomorrow, October 30th, on for $9.99 each.  I call dibs on the Halloween dude.

"Rotten Gourd" Marbled Sludge Demon from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore Available Tonight

    Very few things in life make me happy.  There's my wife, my cats, cable television, grilled meat products, Slurpees, professional wrestling, and marbled vinyl.  God I love toys that are made with a multiple colors of plastic.  They give me a special feeling deep down in my soul each time I gaze upon their beauty.  You can't tell me you're not in love with these Sludge Demons from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore the way I am, and I'm so in love with them that I won't ever tell my therapist about it because he may try to have me committed.  

    I sure don't!  Especially being that these beauties are dropping tonight at 8pm eastern time over at  There will be unpainted versions for $75 and painted ones for $85.  They don't let you have access to the internet or your credit cards in the nut house.  At least that's what I heard anyway, it's not like I've been or anything.  Stop judging me.  

Lonely Dark Lady TQ from 3A

    I'm still pissed at George Lucas for going back and putting that garbage into the original Star War trilogy.  Especially being that the computer generated nonsense added exactly nothing to the films other than the feeling of fine grit sandpaper in my undershorts.  But this figure from 3A has given me a great idea for something to change in The Empire Strikes Back.  You know that pivotal scene where Vader tells Luke that he is his long lost father?  Let's revise it a bit:

Vader:  "Luke, I am your father."

Luke:  "No. That's not possible."

Vader:  "I know, right.  And to be honest I left you and your sister not to focus on my evil career, but to become the person I always knew I was inside."

     Vader then rips off his bulky outfit to reveal his new, streamlined, ladies body.  His light saber becomes a stripper pole and he flaunts what his space credits bought him.  

      End scene.

     You know that's a Robot Chicken sketch waiting to happen.   Hit me up Seth Green, and let's make sweet magic.
    October 30th is the date to get your hands on this 1/6th scale beauty from 3A and the only place to do that is  Your childhood will never be the same.

Check Out This New Figure From Javier Jimenez: Dorobanii the Jackalope

    Since the dawn of time, people have ben obsessed with sticking animals together to create new ones.  It's kind of a weird thing to do, but people seem to get a kick out of it.  From the Fiji Mermaid, which is half monkey half fish, to two-headed monstrosities featured in sideshows, we just can't get enough of tinkering with critters.  One of the cuter biological mashups of there is the jackalope, which for the uninitiated is a rabbit with antlers that can be found stuffed and ready for sale in all the best roadside souvenir shops throughout the american southwest.  Thankfully, someone has finally created a much more adorable version that doesn't require a two parts roadkill and one part super glue.

    Javier Jimenez's latest creation is this adorable little jackalope named Dorobanii.  You can check out his whole backstory by watching this video:

    He is available as we speak in the two different versions you see above.  There the regular edition, and a special Halloween edition that is limited to only 15 pieces.  These little resin dudes are only available from

McSupersize Gold from Ron English x K. Olin Tribu On Sale Now!

    I'm embarrassed to say I have not only seen my first Drake video, but heard my first Drake song.  It's nowhere near my fault though, cause it was on the morning news cause they were making fun of his dance moves.  He does kinda look like someone going through physical therapy after a bad car accident, which is fitting cause the song made me want to drive into a tree.  Maybe his mom didn't believe in vaccines and he's got the early stages of polio setting in.  Serves him right for putting such awful noise out into the world.  

    I bring Drake up because he probably has a lot of money, thus making him a "baller".  But you don't need to sing bad songs to let people know your status, you can just get one of these sweet porcelain figures from Ron English x K. Olin Tribu.  People will walk into your house, spot that amazing gold finish, and know from the get go that you are not to be trifled with.  They might also ask you for a loan, so just be prepared for that.  

   These are limited to 15 pieces and on sale right now via   

Another One of A Kind Mummy and Sarcophagus Set Celebrating 10 Years of Plaseebo

    The last time I wrote about one of Plaseebo's special Mummy and Sarcophagus sets I told you how I wanted to be an archeologist when I was a wee little lad, but how unpractical I realized it was.  Well, no more than two weeks later what did I see online?  If you guessed a job posting for an archaeologist, you would be correct.  Ugh, if I had only stayed the course, I would have way better stories to tell my wife about how I spent all day in the woods digging up skulls like it was no big deal.  Instead I have to wait around for someone to act like a crazy person before I have anything interesting to relay when I get home.  Luckily, that happens a lot, but still.  

   The aforementioned Plaseebo is celebrating ten years of making crazy toys by releasing these one of a kind sets.  How awesome would this look next to your human skull collection (that I obviously don't have because of bad career choices).  This duo goes up for sale tomorrow, October 23, only at

Seen at NYCC: Tenacious Toys

    Every year Tenacious Toys gets together with a ton of other artists and brands, buys up a chunk of real estate in New York Comic Con, and creates Fort Kick Ass (a totally unofficial name).  On the outside it looks innocent enough, with tables full of toys and people looking to strike up conversation, but it's what's in the middle of it that you don't see that would truly blow your mind.  They have their own sanitation system, fire department, ministry of defense and electric company.  From what I hear they are currently looking for weapons grade uranium to squash threats from unruly anime gangs, but that has yet to be confirmed.  

    All that may or may not be true, as their propaganda department is very good at spinning webs of confusion, but you should check out some pictures here and on our Facebook page of tons of custom toys.  

I Am Hugely Popular in Russia In Case You Were Wondering

    That's Vladimir Putin, president of Russia, who rank second only behind the United States in viewership for this website.  I'm not really sure how these things happen, cause the internet is weird, but I love you all and would welcome an all expenses paid trip to Moscow and one of those scary Siberian dogs that are the size of a bear that I saw on a prison documentary once.  I shall name him Boris and he shall survive on a diet or irritating children from my neighborhood who insist on not getting out of the street any time a car is coming.  They shall rue the day.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

I'm just gonna leave this here.  

Pimp2-D2's Pimp Speeder from Manly Art

    As someone wiser than me once said, pimpin ain't easy.  Especially in this economy, cause that recession just won't let up.  And then all those intergalactic hoes trying to unionize like they're working in a factory.  If that were the case pimpin would indeed be easy, though I doubt that's what Henry Ford had in mind when he developed the assembly line.  I gotta hurry up and finish this cause I need to go look at some warehouse properties if you know what I'm saying.  

    When you the biggest pimp in the galaxy like Pimp2-D2 is, you gotta have a fly ride with a sexy chauffeur so you can keep an eye on your investments.  And by investments I mean prostitutes.  He sure isn't making any money on real estate, that's a fool's game.  

    This set from Manly Art comes with everything you need to be the boss of your little corner of space.  Decorate your speeder with the included sticker sheet, or keep it plain so the police have a harder time stopping you from handlin' your business.  These go on sale tomorrow, October 21st, at noon CST only at  Only 15 pieces are available, do don't be some live turkey driving your ladies around in your mom's Volvo station wagon.  I still miss that car.

Seen at NYCC: Super7

    You know how you make a triumphant return to New York Comic Con after a few years away?  If you're Super7 you build a massive booth, fill it with tons of exclusives, and then just wait as the huddled masses make their way up and down the aisle, unable to miss the grandeur.  There was a lot to see and a lot to buy, both of which I happily partook in.  You can check out more photos by visiting and you can purchase all remaining exclusives at  

On Sale Now: The Lonely Warrior Tomorrow Queen from 3A

    And you thought all Stormtroopers were clones.  If they all looked like this instead of Jango Fett the Empire would have never been able to focus enough to build one, let alone two Death Stars.  It would have saved them a lot of money on uniforms, though.  Probably could have afforded the extra man hours to have actually covered those exhaust vents.  If you wanna run the Galaxy, you gotta be on board with forward thinking.  

     You can get this feisty lady from 3A right now over at  She stands a full two feet tall, comes with two interchangeable heads, and enough accessories to squash any rebellion that may come her way.

Even More New Releases from Kidrobot

    Kidrobot is going to town with all of these recent releases, so much so that I've collected the one's I've neglected thus far into one post to help you maximize your toy buying abilities.  Prepare to be overwhelmed with things you need.

    Let me tell you something.  Doesn't it sound real serious when I start a paragraph off with that?  Like I'm on the verge of snapping while interrogating you for a crime you just won't confess to?  Well I've got a witness, bub, and I'm ready to make sure you go away for a looooooooooong time for buying that Insane Clown Posse cd.  Kidding, but seriously, just steal the thing next time so it doesn't end up on your credit card statement.  That will haunt you if you ever need to take out a loan.  

    What I was gonna tell you is that Amanda Visell's Ferals mini series is beyond adorable.  Not that you can't see that for yourself, but sometimes it's nice to have a bit of reinforcement when you're declaring things the cutest you've ever seen.  Utilizing the Munnyworld and Dunny platforms for her animal creations, these will make even the toughest grown man squee with delight.  They're sold blind boxed for $11.99 each but I dare you to be able to just buy one.  You can't.

    I've coveted this Dunny from doubleparlour the moment I found out it was happening.  I snagged one this past weekend and completely love it.  It's really interesting to see their work transformed onto such a familiar platform and to have been done without relying on any sculpting.  Hopefully this will not be the last version of their work realized in graphic fashion, cause now I'm hooked.  These are available now for $14.99 each.  

    Halloween is coming and everyone would really appreciate it if you put more effort into your costume this year.  Stop going to that dumb store in the mall, buying what you think is "sexy" or even worse "funny sexy" and parading around like you're changing the game.  Instead of scarring your trick or treaters for life, why not get yourself one of these masks.  You can pick from the DIY ones you see above, designs from the new Dunny series from Brandt Peters, or Frank Kozik's uber popular Labbits.  Your friends will thank you.  Available now for $19.99 each.   

Seen at NYCC: Bigshot Toyworks

    This is wasn't the first year that Bigshot Toyworks was at New York Comic Con, but it is the first time that they were not only selling their wares, but had an exclusive available.   The Hellfire Lil Maddie looked amazing in clear red and in a smaller size that the original 6 inch figure.  Their booth was filled with items from the Four Horsies of the Pocalypse line, but it was one particular prototype I was the most excited to see, as it was the first time it had been displayed in public.

    You used to have a lot of options if you were a Dalek fan and wanted to collect his figures, but it's been a number of years since anything has been released.  Well that's all about to change, as you can see from this Space Monkey prototype.  No word on a release date, but being there's an actual three dimensional representation of it, I'd have to assume we'll be seeing it sooner than later.  

     You can check out many more pictures by visiting

Red October DC13 Astronauts Battle Set from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore

    Ok, this one is a gimme so I'm gonna do it:  "You could say your hunt for Red October has come to an end."

"That's not funny."

    Suck it, Connery.  Your Scottish accent and ability to woe the entire female population of the world have no power here.   I'll make all the cheesy jokes I want, because I am a megalomaniacal dictator of this little piece of the internet and I intend to weird an iron fist when it comes to comedic content.  Shall we move on?

    Right this moment, even as you read this, there is a new lottery going on from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore for this super sick Red October DC13 Astronauts Battle Set.  You get two 10 inch tall figures with 9 points of articulation each.  That's way more articulation than you can probably handle, so try not to get overwhelmed.  But wait, that's not all cause you also get a set of wearable dog tags, a sticker, and a huge sew on patch so you can really immerse yourself in a space robot war fantasy. 

    As I stated before this lottery is happening now and will close just before midnight eastern time tonight.  Winners will be notified tomorrow.  Get on it at

Seen at NYCC: KaijuMonster


    One of the things I enjoy most about New York Comic Con is seeing things in person that I normally only see pictures of online.  Certain toys can't be done justice unless your eye balls can gaze upon them in real life, and every year  KaijuMonster melts my retinas with some of the most killer toys from around the world.

    It was great catching up with Guumon, who has made the jump into full-time toy making and is working on tons of stuff that sounded very exciting.  Dude is living his dream and you can't help but be inspired by that.

    The resin work of DT Custom and Flawtoys were some of the best figures I saw all weekend.  Each toy looked like glass rather than any type of plastic, and I am truly a sucker for the double casting technique when it's pulled off so flawlessly.  Really impressive stuff.  If you want to see more pictures from the convention you can check out
